Shubman Gill can also be replaced by Prithvi Shaw if he returns to the Test arena. Shubman Gill had scored his maiden Test ton against Bangladesh in the preceding Test series but since he is in prolific form in ODI 50 overs format recently, he can take a break from Test cricket. Shubman Gill can also bat in the middle order if Prithvi Shaw makes a comeback in IND vs AUS Tests.
Shubman Gill has played 13 Tests and averages 32. Shubman Gill scored 4 fifties and a ton in the 1st Test against Bangladesh. He opened in absence of injured Rohit Sharma in the Tests against Bangladesh and managed 157 runs averaging 39.25.
He scored 259 runs in 3 Tests in his debut Test series in the 2020/21 Australia tour where he scored 91 in the historic Test win at Gabba in the 4th Test. He will definitely feature in the IND vs AUS Test series.
